Description

People have been demonstrating in the Iraqi capital Baghdad and the country's south. It is the second wave of protests in the country this month as the people call for the government to address high unemployment, poor public services and corruption.

Also in the programme: Investigators in Indonesia blame design flaws in the Boeing 737 Max for last year's Lion Air disaster; and a permanent ban on climbing Australia's famous red rock, Uluru, comes into effect.
